Ban This 2010

This Blog will be taking part in Bites - Ban This
What's Ban This? It's a month long spin off of ALA's Ban Book Week (9/25 -10/2).

Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment.  Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.

I decided this would be a great way to support all those Authors who have been banned. I know locally Ellen Hopkins was recently banned from coming to Teen Lit Festival done here in Humble,TX less than 15 mins from my house. Then when this happen I started researching to know what other books that I have read have also been banned and why. Thats when I came across The Twilight Saga, come on are you kidding? Stephenie Meyer is Mormon. The list of books is something to laugh a little about. You have Harry Potter series, Bridge To Terabithia and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to just name a few. 

I honestly think they are getting carried away somewhat and should let the Parents or Guardians choose what their children will read. So if you are interested in joining just click the link above. 

Banned book to read list:
Crank by Ellen Hopkins
and more to come.....


  1. Awesome! I just read Crank, it's a good one. Hope you like it!

  2. I laughed when I saw Twilight on the list, I mean are you kidding me? Nice post.

  3. I totally agree w/ what you said! We're supporting Banned Book Week all month long on Mundie Moms.

  4. I think I'll be doing this challenge myself. I recently read and review Crank. It was very good. Enjoy it.
